Our team is hard at work creating the Mancos Valley Dragonfly Preschool!

 

Our fabulous Board of Directors and Head Teacher are busy with grant writing, budget creation, procuring materials, curriculum development, creating policies, procedures, and forms. The building plans are in progress (see below!!) and construction is set to take place in spring and summer of 2019, with our first class scheduled to begin September 3rd, 2019. Join our mailing list below to receive updates on progress! Space is limited as class size will be small; reserve a spot for your preschool aged child by filling in an application form.

 

We’re in the paper!

Preschool will be bottom right, where X marks the spot!

Preschool will be bottom right, where X marks the spot!


It’s not about a specific type of education. It’s about life, about people and connection, about a sense of wellbeing for yourself, your friends and our world. School, especially Preschool and Kindergarten, should be a place for children to set foundations for those experiences. Let them be children, use their curiosity, keep their magical reverence. They will have plenty of time for academics later. Soon enough they will be learning about the science of seasons. Until then, let them sing about Grandfather fire and Sister rain.
